Sofia Benegas

Sofia comes from a family whose lifestyle is closely intertwined with the outdoors, nature, and adventure. She grew up by the coast of Peninsula Valdes, Northern Patagonia. It is here where she found her love for the sea and way of life in complete contact with nature from an early age. She works as a Skipper in whale watching, dedicating over 25 years to this activity in Peninsula Valdes and specializing in marine wildlife viewing. She regularly works as a support diver and guide with wildlife documentary film crews, such as National Geographic and BBC. She started sea kayaking in 2004 and has participated in numerous expeditions exploring the coast of Patagonia. This was when she chose to pursue guiding kayak trips as a different way to connect with nature and enjoy the biodiversity and wild sea of Patagonia, alternating Southern Right Whale Watching guidance and sea kayaking along the season.
